Importance of Computer as a Tool for Processing Data
We need a computer for data processing for various reasons:
- Business organizations are bigger and more complex with an increased number of day-to-day activities handled by such organizations.
- Traditional, manual methods are too slow to handle manual transactions. Hence, unfinished transactions are pushed forward to another time. i.e. there are backlogs.
- Extra time and resources needed to clear the backlogs.
- Accuracy of information may not be guaranteed under manual methods.
- Information may not be available on time and this may affect decision making and adequate planning.
- Traditional storage of data is inefficient especially with a large quantity of information.
